Atmospheric piece that fails as a film
13 October 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This film is something like a medieval crime thriller set in Norway around the mid 14th century. A curious choice for a setting, and refreshingly new when everything else from that period seems to be about rampant vikings. The film starts out well, but you quickly realise that this film is somewhat amateurish in its execution, there's a clear absence of an interesting story. Large parts of the film have expositional voice-over spoon-feeding the audience the plot, the other parts we're left to wonder if we really care about any of the characters at all.

The protagonist is a lawman back from Paris trying to clear his brother's name. The plot here, really, should be very easy, yet the director chooses to go about it in such a confusing way. We get no backdrop to the two brothers' relationship, the woman that drove them apart, all these things come halfway into the film as an afterthought. The result is that he runs around large parts of the film with this confused look on his face that looks straight out of drama school. Random bodies turn up here and there, you're wondering if this will turn into Troll Hunter 2 at some point, but sadly no, the screenwriter has decided that the story of the futile investigation hunt is such an emotional powerful story that it needs to be told to the letter.

There's a cast of strange and underwritten characters who make no sense. A scrawny Scotsman with a contemporary haircut who keeps shouting out for whiskey all the time, a Finnish heathen grandpa, a Danish enforcer and others who you have no reason to like or understand why they're trumping about in the mud of that god-forsaken village. There's a couple of very good actors who make an appearance, but the material they're working on is not enough to establish a connection with the audience, or indeed between each other.

The music and directing is just trying to hard to make us feel something like we're watching a big, dramatic blockbuster. We're not. This is a very low-budget film thats trying too hard to feel like the next medieval epic. Action sequences are awkwardly filmed and choreographed. Certain props and effects looks like they were bought new at the local hardware shop the day of filming. Some of the language is strangely modern. There's some great shots of landscapes and cinematography in the film - but the pretty gloss cannot redeem this shambolic mess.
